21. To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills what steps the Government have taken to improve advice and support for adults who are low-skilled. (205681)

We are creating an adult advancement and careers service, to be fully operational from 2010-11, to provide universal, high quality information and advice on careers and skills. With targeted guidance for the low skilled and those who need it most and help that recognises the range of barriers to getting on in learning and work. There will be additional funding of at least £50 million from 2010-11 to support the service.
